Landmarks are representations of a city. Because of them, tourists flock to different destinations in admiration. They also reflect in some ways the culture intertwined within the city. Today we feature a series of illustrations of the wonderful city of Istanbul by Zeynep Kınlı, and illustrator and graphics artist from the same city. Read on and enjoy!

Being born and raised in Istanbul, one of the most beautiful cities in the world in so many ways, I felt like working on a detailed illustration project that would unearth the numerous gems scattered around Istanbul, which embody centuries of history and culture. I made a list of the landmarks that we –as Turkish people- are so used to pass by in our daily lives that sometimes we forget to appreciate their unique beauty. I hope to expand this project by adding more landmarks and turning it into a Istanbul guide.
